also lists partridge, pheasant and quail as avoids ~~ for secretor Type As only. However, others such as squab, grouse, guinea hen and turkey (including wild turkey) are neutral for secretors.
Some fowl are to be avoided due to a high fat content, others because of lectin activity -- more properly, "galectin," or animal- rather than plant-sourced lectins. Chicken, for instance, contains a lectin which reacts only with blood groups having a B antigen: types B and AB.
It is well worth getting your secretor status, either with a saliva test or through Lewis testing, for the Meat and Poultry food group alone: 10 items with an avoid rating for secretors are neutral for nonsecretors, and one entry moves from neutral to beneficial. In any case, the food lists in Live Right are expanded from those in Eat Right. Certainly widens the field for the feathered game fanciers!
